Hollysbaby is simply a trial. I work for an organization with our own custom-made website for VIP wildlife and conservation travel, and we are interested in using wordpress for a blog that connects our unique visitors with our organization and our travel services. Our website already hasa complicated and custom password protection that allows users to have specific access according to their account password information we give them. We want to create a private (or protected?) blog that can only be found by going to our website (thereby blocking it from all search engines - can we also blog from wordpress search?) We want to know if our password information from our existing website can talk to or be authenticated by the wordpress blog, so that our users do not have two separate login usernames and passwords for effectively the same thing. Can we do this with your platform? If this is not possible, what do you recommend?
Also, can our blog be custom made with our own CSS code through a wordpress.com blog? Or, do we need to go through wordpress.org? We looked through this online a little bit, but ultimately couldn't find a straight answer to whether or not we can design our own blog to look exactly like our website. We want our blog to be as seamless a transition from our website to our blog.
Thank you, and we look forward to hearing from you!
